Thank you so much for your support . I feel privileged to count on each an every one of you, and the feedback so far has been extremely positive. We have the wind in our sails and we need to maintain the momentum.

Now, on to the serious stuff :)

I encourage you all to go see the videos and 'like' those that impress you. Some of them are nothing short of world class productions.

The official judging will now start.

IMPORTANT: The process for selecting the winner has been modified. I have decided to remove myself from the judging process in order to maintain total impartiality.

3 judges will deliberate on the above short list. These judges are:

Max Seigal (USA): National Geographic photographer and long time supporter and contributor at AES
Ronny Brouwers (Netherlands): CEO of DroneHeroes, supporter and contributor at AES
Cricri Kreolyab (Reunion Island): CEO of LiveClik, supporter and contributor at AES.

The judges will deliberate for about 10 days and a winner will be communicated as we get close to Christmas. They will be judging not only on the beauty of the footage, but looking at the overall production, which covers the quality of footage, artistry, editing, grading, etc. The winning production must serve as a source of inspiration for all drone enthusiasts.

The winner will have the choice to receive the DJI Mavic Pro or a wire transfer of USD $999.

The winning video will be featured on our landing page as our first ever "Video of the month".

For all those who will not have been selected, we wish to thank you for your contribution. Your videos will remain on the site and available for customers to purchase.

As always, if you would like to communicate with me, please do not hesitate to add me to your friend list. It's always a pleasure to connect with fellow aerial enthusiasts.

You may also want to join our Facebook group that was created specifically to talk about the commercial aspect of aerial photography and cinematography. You can join the Aerial Cinematography and Photography group here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1771986186372132/

Naturally, for those interested in showcasing and selling their footage, or if you want to be considered for aerial filming jobs we get around the world, I encourage you to visit our site and register as sellers. You can do this at the following address: www.aerial-entertainment-studios.com

Please join me is wishing GOOD LUCK TO OUR FINALISTS … LET THE JUDGING BEGIN !!!

Unfortunately not. The winner can select the Mavic or the cash, but if the Mavic is the preferred prize, then we will need to order one and that might take some time as you know.
Either way, it is a pretty good prize.
Cheers
